Scientific Calculator Toolbar

updated Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

It's Back! I'm on Firefox 11.0 now, and the version 5.0 calculator works fine, looks like it was updated Jan 2012.

This was the best - I really hope it gets updated to work with newer Firefox. Very convenient to have it small at the bottom of the page. Might be nice if we could also expand it tho - for more serious calculatin. Thx.

Showcase

Firefox Showcase vs Foxtabs Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

I was searching the Mozilla Add-Ons for something like the IE Quick Tabs, and found Firefox Showcase and Foxtabs. I installed one at work and one at home. Both are great, way better than Firefox "List All Tabs" default function (and better than Internet Explorer Quick Tabs feature).

Especially cool is that both show tabs from all open Firefox windows, not just current (make sure you select an All Windows display option in Showcase) - this greatly increases the utility and I no longer have the problem of trying to find a specific tab among 3 different windows. Both easily display 40 tabs (with a quick mouse-wheel spin), I haven't really tried more than that.

Foxtabs
*Shortcut hog. I say this lightly, can disable specific shortcuts, and Foxtabs is very easy to open when you want it. Left+Right click, Right click plus spin the mousewheel, Ctrl+Tab, Ctrl+Q (this is what IE uses also)... and others each a little different function.
*Find is a good feature, but usually not necessary - can find your tab visually (unless you use one of the fluffy aesthetic layouts like Row)
*Grouping is nice (show only google tabs for instance), but not essential
*Can turn off Foxtabs if less than X tabs are open (so Ctrl+Tab does the usual).
*Flashier, six layouts, reflections and 3D options, but only Wall and Grid layouts make any sense IMHO.
*Minor, but I like the little tab counter in lower left

Vs.

Firefox Showcase
*Can select multiple tabs for bookmarking and other functions --> Merge to New Window rocks (eg select several Christmas shopping tabs in Showcase, and merge them to a new window, so you can separate them from your metallurgy research tabs).
*More thumbnail sizing options (pixel size and percentage).
*This is a pain - doesn't come with any shortcuts to open it, but can be added by installing KeyConfig. A shortcut is needed because the List All Tabs button is very small and sometimes far away (right side of tab bar). When you do install KeyConfig the default shortcuts are no good. F12 - Really? my right hand is on the mouse. So I added Ctrl+Q. I wanted to add Left+Right click, but don't seem to be able to add mouse shortcuts with KeyConfig.
*Default settings work fine (tho I forget what they were now), but I took about an hour to figure out the numerous menu options to make it better.
*Sidebar scroll is an extra layout that makes sense for some uses, especially w/wide monitor).
*Puts colored borders around tabs located in same windows, not easy to see but potentially helpful if you look for it
*Didn't realize at first but also has Find, just start typing in Showcase.

Conclusion: You can't go wrong with either Add-On. Foxtabs is a little cooler out of the box (mainly because better shortcuts), just select Grid or Wall. But Showcase wins because of Merge to New Window.

Scientific Calculator Toolbar

Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

This is a great tool. Especially since Powertoys calculator doesn't work on Vista or XP 64. Having visible equation is great and the pop-up with recently used equations is handy. Even has variables and a few standard constants.
